We have partnered with Deakin University on the Regenerative Agriculture for Climate Resilience project.
The Regenerative Agriculture and Climate Resilience project aims to understand what regenerative agriculture is and what potential opportunities there may be in the City of Whittlesea.
Climate resilience is becoming increasingly important to agricultural businesses of all shapes and sizes.
The recurring dry periods are becoming less about drought and more about our new normal.
This project will look to support businesses to make informed land management decisions to improve climate resilience and to take advantage of their local competitive advantages.
This survey is the first stage of the project and is open to all farmers and agricultural practitioners across Victoria. You do not need to be a regenerative farmer to participate. We welcome and encourage participation of all farmers.
Take the survey to help give us a better understanding of farming practices and the impact of climate change on your business. This understanding will help us create policy to support farmers and foster climate resilience in our region.
At the end of the survey, participants will have the opportunity for further involvement, which includes an in depth study of on farm practice, including soil testing and climate resilience assessment.
The survey closes on 31 January 2020.
